Avenged Sevenfold - I Won't See You Tonight (Part 1) Lyrics

Cry alone, I've gone away
No more nights, no more pain
I've gone alone, took all my strength
I've made the change,
I won't see you tonight

Sorrow, sank deep inside my blood
All the ones around me
I cared for and loved

It's building up inside of me
A place so dark, so cold, I had to set me free
Don't mourn for me,
You're not the one to place the blame
As bottles call my name I won't see you tonight

Sorrow sank deep inside my blood
All the ones around me
I cared for and most of all I loved
But I can't see myself that way
Please don't forget me or cry while I'm away

Cry alone, I've gone away
No more nights, no more pain
I've gone alone, took all my strength
But I've made the change,
I won't see you tonight

So far away, I'm gone.
Please don't follow me tonight
And while I'm gone everything will be alright

No more breath inside
Essence left my heart tonight
No more breath inside
Essence left my heart tonight

    RIP laronnie we will meet again. I'm sorry I haven't visited in awhile but I will soon

  3. Cheryl Ann Alger

    Awesome song! ❤💓💛

  4. Lucas André

    It is interesting that I, as a Brazilian and having Portuguese as my native language, in my adolescence did not understand the lyrics I only heard the melody that brought deep sorrow in the heart. Today understanding the lyrics of the song I can say that my heart was right.

  5. Shadow Johan

    Thanks, Ten Second Songs

  6. Wanda Johnda


  7. Only a Human

    I seriously only like a few of their songs. This and part two are half of them. Mostly to me his voice is off. Maybe in ten years I will have a different opinion. Just like I did with anything from ozzy. But Damn is this song awesome. And part two is even better. Again, just my opinion. Don't hate me. Lol

  8. Bandungan

    2020 nostalgia song

  40. Combustible frog Jr.

    Even though what I'm going through is nothing compared to what others deal with daily, this song has saved my life several times. After surviving an 'event' where this song wasn't enough, it hits closer to home than ever, and hopefully it'll be enough. I'm glad the belt didn't hold my weight and I got to live another day. If you're going through something similar, please call out for help, people will answer. I know most won't believe me, but take it from someone who's been there. Things will get better, I promise. Good luck guys

    Waking the fallen story:

    Not too long ago, there were three friends named Damien, Matt, and Jimmy. These boys grew up together and were the best of friends. These boys would often sit and wonder about the world around them and their very existence (hence remissions) Throughout life however, they began to have different plans for different paths in life which lead to a lot of arguments and eventually their falling out. (Hence desecrated through reverence) Matt and Damien went their separate ways leaving Jimmy in the middle having to deal with the pain of losing the two most important people in his life. This tore him in half and brought lots of grief (hence second heartbeat) during their split damien had to deal with the lost of his brother at the hands of a murderer which influenced him to find and kill the man. (Hence chapter four) this however didn't heal the wound that it left which lead him to take his own life (hence I wont see you tonight which is his suicide letter to Matt and Jimmy) after hearing about their friend's passing Matt and Jimmy felt a burning hate and rage toward their friend for leaving and wanted to join him but they held on for each other. Matt started to fall into a similar depression not being able to get over the lost of his friend and began to long for death as well (hence clairvoyant disease) finding this out, Jimmy tried to talk with Matt and keep his only living friend here (hence unholy confession and the lyric "nothing will last in this life") Hearing his friend telling him to get over the death of someone they loved sent Matt over the edge causing him to shoot jimmy (hence radiant eclipse and the lyrics "two nights ago i was shot, a bullet sunk straight through my skull. A friend pulled the trigger that silenced me") coming to his senses, Matt saw what he did and realized that he was now alone in this world but couldn't take it so he killed himself as well (hence all things will end since he was the last friend alive) in the afterlife, the three friends weren't accepted into heaven or hell so they were damned to stay in this world (hence eternal rest) and tonight they've been given the chance to rise from their graves and watch their story play in front of their eyes before they return to their forever resting place (hence waking the fallen and why it comes first in the album cause the album is them watching their story in spirit and hence waking the fallen resurrected which is them going back to their graves.) *the end*

    TrustyTryhard Gamer wow man

  45. Doc Holiday

    This song kept me alive after watching my brother die in front of me in 2001 let's just say the pain has never left I'm more numb then anything but it still haunts me every year when I know the day creeps up

  46. Different Angle

    This has to be one of their best shits ever!

  49. Gustavo Fabian Feltan

  50. Somebody Faraway

    5:06 sounds like cradle of filth - blackest magick in practice

  51. One Handed

    2020 is on the way. This song still legend. Who will stay with me till 2020 aproach?

  52. Sarai Huereca

    Avenged Sevenfold helps me feel the things I burry beneath my surface. I can always count on them to make me feel human again. Matt’s voice just touches my soul differently than anything I’ve ever listened too.
    I’ll be a DeathBat till the day I die, whether that be sooner or later 🖤☠️

  53. Mohamad Iqram Hafiz

  61. Isma Faris

    Still listening to this song

  62. James Steiniger

    What's weird is that this album is closing in on 20 years old and still bangs better than most metal albums now. This song is the break to really appreciate the time and emotion spent on making it. Idk, I'm drunk and missing Jimmy so thanks for being my momentary therapist. Here's to our St. James 🥃.

  63. Jø FalleN

    December 6
    If ur listening to this song..
    U got my respect..

  64. johnny bob

    This song is amazing, so much different than soccer mom radio a7x and they have a great drummer/writer in this album/song. Anyone who says Hail to the King is good is obviously a fucking idiot and should listen to this peace of art.

    Miguel Alfaro

    Hail to the king is alright

    This is pure gold right here, it’s like melted gold just so hot it burns through your heart but it then instead of leaking out of your heart it solidifies right In your heart, and you don’t feel any pain...

  75. Samuel painter

    No more nights....
    No more pain......

  76. Rich Zimmerman

    Real Music! Deep lyrics, bass from the soul, feel the drums in your heart, guitar sceeaming, vocals on point and that piano brings the sadness = Outfknstanding!!!

  77. Tony Clackler

    I swear I hope A7x comes back around to make an official music video for this masterpiece

  78. alex novitsky

    Dear God, forgive me for my Unholy Confessions, Crimson Day is upon us, Planets will collide, I'm not ready to Die but I'll Carry On. Fiction in my mind as the Nightmare goes on. Feeling Betrayed as the Forgotten Faces consume me, Remenissions are all I have. I grasp a Second Heartbeat as the Demons attempt to take over me and the Girl I Know. I'm at the Crossroads of the Afterlife and Eternal Rest. It's Almost Easy to forget I've Lost it All, but at 4 a.m. Tonight the World Dies. Save me Shepherd of Fire but I know you are Shattered by Broken Dreams so I'll Turn the other Way from the Heretic and Seize the Day while the Strength of the World is still with me. I feel like I'm Blinded in Chains as the Tension rolls over me and unfortunately St. James I Won't See You Tonight for there is a Radiant Eclipse And All Things Will End. The Fight commences as the Dancing Dead are Buried Alive and now So Far Away. They will be Coming Home, not Lost but understanding that they were Doing their Time and experiencing a Little Piece of Heaven. Sidewinder swipes til the Wicked End and currently i'm M.I.A., feeling like a Victim. Acid Rain begins to pour down while im standing on the Danger Line so of course This Means War as I Scream because there is a Gunslinger on the Streets in front of me. Darkness Surrounding as he shouts Hail to the King! Almost like a Clairvoyant Disease it's an Epic of Time Wasted. Seeing the light as the Unbound Wild Ride Continues. Absolutely Trashed and Scattered. A7X foREVer
